    NEW YORK, NY - A plane from Toronto landed safely at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday before sliding into snow as it turned onto a taxiway. The airport temporarily suspended flights from taking off and landing because of icy runways.

    No injuries were reported after Delta Connection 4100 landed at 8 a.m., Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said. The CRJ2 aircraft was turning off the runway onto a taxiway when it slid into the snow, she said.

    The plane was then towed to a gate with passengers on board, she said.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, said 35 people were aboard the plane.

    The airport temporarily suspended operations for domestic and international flights because of slick runways, though it remained open.

    The landing came two days after a major snowstorm dumped a half foot of snow in New York City, forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights and stranding passengers both in the city and throughout the country who were heading to New York.

    The Delta Connection flight by Endeavor Air originated in Toronto. Endeavor Air was formerly Pinnacle Airlines.
